Home Buyer Services in Massachusetts

As your Buyer Agent, I only represent you and your best interests as the home buyer, not the seller’s.

Client service is my passion!  I provide exceptional service with comprehensive, detailed analysis to help you make educated decisions with confidence and peace of mind.

Buyer Beware:  Dual Agency

Beware many real estate agents practice “dual agency” or “disclosed dual agency”; meaning they work with both the buyer and seller in the same transaction.  Working in this way agents maximum their income by receiving the full real estate commission (twice as much income).

It is my choice to not practice dual agency so that I can ensure my Client’s best interests are always represented with undivided loyalty.  I do not work with both sides in the same transaction (buyer and seller for same property) because I feel strongly it creates a financial and fiduciary conflict of interest.

Your first step as a home buyer is to decide what level of service, advocacy, and agency representation you want to have while purchasing one of the most expensive investments in your lifetime.
